Helping You Recover Your Rightful Compensation

When you are in need of a medical procedure, you expect that your doctor will provide you with the care you need. Unfortunately, healthcare professionals sometimes make mistakes that have unfavorable consequences. If you have been injured due to a doctor or other healthcare professional’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your economic and none-economic damages. At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, we know how devastating the results of medical malpractice can be — and we are committed to fighting for justice on your behalf for the harm that you suffered.

Aggressive Advocacy When You Need it the Most

When a doctor deviates from the accepted standards in providing medical care, you may be forced to deal with the repercussions for the rest of your life. Medical malpractice can lead to permanent disability, life-long medical care, loss of employment, and loss of quality of life. In addition to the physical pain and mental anguish you may be experiencing, the medical bills associated with the treatment you need due to the malpractice can quickly add up.

Holding the negligent healthcare provider accountable for their wrongdoing by filing a medical malpractice lawsuit is crucial to help ensure you obtain the compensation you deserve. At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, our lawyers are adept at handling a wide variety of medical malpractice matters, including those involving the following issues:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Negligent failure to treat
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Hospital negligence
  • Surgical errors and malpractice
  • Anesthesia malpractice
  • Brain damage
  • Medication errors
  • Defective medical devices
  • Wrong-site surgeries

Medical malpractice is a serious matter and requires the representation of a skillful lawyer with extensive experience in handling these types of claims. The legal team at The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP has the knowledge and acumen necessary to thoroughly investigate a medical malpractice case — and will fight to ensure the wrongdoer is held responsible for their carelessness.

A Strategic Focus to Obtain the Results You Need

If you suffered an injury due to the negligence, carelessness, or recklessness of a healthcare provider, pursuing compensation for your damages is vital. Depending on the facts and circumstances in your case, you may be able to bring a claim against a medical doctor, nurse, surgeon, anesthesiologist, or physician assistant. Some lawsuits might also involve emergency room staff or the hospital administration. Our NYC medical malpractice lawyers work diligently to identify each party that could potentially held liable for your economic and non-economic damages.
